FRITO PIE RE-VISITED aka BLACK BEAN CHICKEN NACHOS

My mom sent me a recipe recently that she’d made and said they’d really loved.  It is sooooo simple, EXTREMELY TASTY, but moreover it was really easy to “modify” – you know me, I MUST modify!  I’ll put the original recipe up and note the adjustments in red.

FRITO PIE RE-VISITED aka BLACK BEAN CHICKEN NACHOS
1 tablespoon butter
4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb.) 1 pound chicken tenders **
1 cup TACO BELL thick & chunky salsa 1 cup PACE thick and chunky salsa

FRITOS

  • Melt butter in skillet and brown chicken until just cooked through.
  • Add salsa and beans.  Bring to a boil and cover. Simmer on medium to low about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Top with cheese. Cover and let stand until cheese is melted – 4-5 minutes.
  • Serve over Fritos and a dollop of sour cream.

**Next time I’ll cut the tenders into bite sized pieces.
